Cozy Blanket

Here is another blanket my sister made before she left, out of  scraps that were left over from my donated yarn stash. It’s a small blanket but I’m sure it will be cozy for small child. 37×37

Snuggly Blanket

Here is a cute snuggly warm blanket, for  a small child. I find it hard to believe that it is just about two years, that l have been crocheting blankets for  Project Linus  . Time sure does fly when you are doing something that you are passionate about, I  really enjoy making the blankets for children. 48×48

Magic Blanket


I started this  blanket a few months ago and put it down and got caught up doing other style blankets for Project Linus. I call this the “Magic Blanket” because I wasn’t happy with the colors, until I added the orange and magically I got the pop I was looking for. 50×50 .This is a solid granny square, you can find the free pattern, with excellent instructions at Fiber Flux .

Chunky Blanket


This is my latest blanket for Project Linus . This is a nice thick  corner to corner  blanket, using 2 strands of 4 ply worsted weight yarn, so “Chunky” is a great name for this cozy blanket. 42×42
